A motorcycle accident can lead to serious injuries, especially when a car is involved. There are legal steps you can take to hold negligent drivers accountable for the pain and injury you or your loved one has endured.
Many people assume that motorcycle accidents are caused by recklessness of the motorcyclist. The majority of motorcyclists, however, are careful, defensive drivers. Most accidents are caused by other drivers who do not see their two-wheeled counterparts or are driving carelessly.
As a motorcyclist, you have the same rights as any driver on the road, including compensation in case of an accident. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, or if a loved one was killed in a fatal motorcycle accident, the personal injury attorneys at Jacobs & Jacobs in New Haven, Connecticut are available to consult with you.

How Jacobs & Jacobs Handles Motorcycle Accident Cases
Our firm will carefully investigate the details of your accident, including witness accounts and forensic reconstruction of the event. We will work to make sure you are provided the compensation you deserve after being injured due to the negligence of a driver.
With no protective frame or additional shield, motorcycles leave drivers vulnerable to devastating injury if they collide with a vehicle. Motorcycle accident injuries can include:
- Multiple fractures
- Closed head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Road rash
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe lacerations and blood loss
- Wrongful death
Many times, victims are left with overwhelming medical bills and costly therapy and rehabilitation. While monetary awards cannot reverse these effects or bring back a loved one, they can help to pay the bills and bring closure to those left behind.
